Sensitizing the Doctors

Doctoral candidates of CMIMA have prepared a presentation to encourage debate within the research centers and departments and to sensitize the research doctors about the issue of fees as a "tip of  iceberg" of the deficient regulation and funding of Spanish and Catalan research.

The pre-docs have shared their presentation on THIS LINK and encourage doctoral students in all schools to use it to initiate discussions in their environments. The research population at all levels should discuss and take positions in order to make possible any serious progress  in the many aspects of research that require improvement. Otherwise, the investment that society does in research not only will remain weak, but  will become useless and eventually disappear.
